    The jackets used in the film have been subject of discussion between collectors for many years. It was first thought that they were original and a rare pattern. It has now been proved that they were produced in Germany as film props especially for the movie. One or two have found there way into collectors hands and when examined their true origins became apparent.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I seem to remember too, that they came up for sale in the Exchange & Mart. and were listed as "film props" not original,but were not cheap even then!

    Thanks guys,
    I'm still not happy, well I have just seen the film in HD on telly today and this is why I raised the question (well probably no help there) .
    What was it '65 ish when the film was made.
    That was superior detail in the studio pattern, if so? even had the high heel of Italy - so I call it

    Hi,
    A friend has one, though I've never seen it and when it was mentioned I remember he said he thought it was an original. I'll ask him about it next time I'm in the UK.
    His is the one worn by Burton, or so he said, though he also said it had a ripped sleeve which was covered in fake blood, which I thought was worn by the guy who fell off the cablecar.

    Hi René, the film was made in 1968.

    While the jackets are nicely done they are still film props. If you want to read the whole saga about these grab a cup of coffee and read this long 9 page thread here:

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: Sometimes these parkas get confused with original but reveresed colour examples.

    JB's correct, but i think these type of jackets must be everywhere as the advertisment in Exchange & Mart was in it every week FOR YEARS. In fact, i believe it's still in Gunmart to this day.
